The Scarlet Pimpernel
AboutThe Scarlet Pimpernel is a musical with music by Frank Wildhorn and lyrics and book by Nan Knighton, based on the 1905 novel of the same name by Baroness Orczy. The show is set in England and France during the Reign of Terror of the French Revolution. The story is a precursor to the spy fiction and the superhero genres, where a hero hides under a mild-mannered alias.
As the French Revolution gets out of hand and Poets, Priests, Intellectuals and Aristocrats are sentenced to the Guillotine, the English Aristocrat Sir Percy Blakeney and his band carry out rescue missions to France. They avoid suspicion in England by pretending to be foppish nincompoops.
Guillotine, swords, fights and lots of lace, perfumes and clothes that "do shimmer so". It's an epic action musical with fantastic tunes and a lot of comedic moments.
